Death on the Aegean Queen (Maria Hudgins)
Mystery/Murder. Classic who-done-it. Dotsy Lamb sets out on a cruise to Greece. Soon a man ends up over board, leaving nothing but a trail of blood. Dotsy sets out to solve this caper. While investigating, the ships photographer ends up dead as well. Panic is abound on the ship, Dotsy is determined to get to the truth. Secrets, lies, and hidden truths abound in this page turning, fast, fun read. I will look at more work from Maria Hudgins.
SUMMARY: George Gaskill, a car salesman from Indiana, goes missing from the stern deck of the Aegean Queen leaving only a pool of blood and a strange note behind. Ollie Osgood, the husband of Dotsy Lamb's best friend Lettie, is the last person to have seen him and one of three men who lost a bundle to George in a Texas Hold'em Poker game. Then the ship's photographer turns up murdered on the beautiful island of Mykonos.
Dotsy wants only to unwind and to renew her promising relationship with Marco
I got this one as an Amazon Prime free loan, and honestly, kinda glad I didn't pay for it. Mystery angle was okay; it's a cozy, so I wasn't expecting profound. Here's the point that drive me nuts: much is made of Dotsy's diabetes, yet she had four ouzos one night! Leads me to wonder whether the author is familiar with the disease at all, but decided to make her protagonist one as a "hook"?

Death on the Aegean Queen is the third installment in the Dotsy Lamb travel mysteries. I first introduced Dotsy in Death of a Geek which was set in the Scottish Highlands. Death on the Aegean Queen is set on a cruise ship that is touring the Aegean and Greek islands. Although there is an abundance of people, the setting could be called remote, or removed from the mainland.

Dotsy, accompanied by friend Lettie and her husband Ollie, is about to leave on a cruise of the Greek islands. She looks forw
I never expected to love this book .... but ... I did! Karen Krause was a perfect choice for narrator. A mix of Agatha and Fletcher very enjoyable.
3 stars for the story, which was pretty entertaining. 5 stars for the audiobook performance.
Dotsy, Lettie and her husband are on a Greek cruise ship. And Marco--part of the Italian carbinari that they met in Italy is joining them. At their dinner table, they meet a couple from America then later that night, the husband is missing and blood is found on the deck. They along with an FBI agent and a local cop, try to figure out what happened as well with a murder of the ship's photographer and some smuggling of valuable artifacts. There were some twists and turns and some surprises. Good w ...more
When I started I was so excited that I found a new mrs. P., but it just didn't work for me. I loved the setting, but never connected with Dotsy, the heroine. Not sure why, she was likeable, and has quirks. The mystery seemed to drag along. Having the two missing mysteries running was fun. but I disliked the end, with the bracelet and Lettie. Never did like the "best friend" Lettie and her husband George. they did not see to act that way, going their won way.
Just okay read, found it slow at times

This mystery by Hudgins is a nice, comfortable read. It is one of a series so those who enjoy this book can enjoy others by the same author. I would read another book by this author myself because it was interesting and the characters were sketched out well.

J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the Isms" "Wesey's Wars" and "To Whom It May Concern"
This is a typical series mystery. It's nothing to write home about but it is a pleasant read. I have read a lot of this type of genre writing, so it's got to be really unusual for me to get excited about it. There were some typos/proofreading errors but not as many as there are in most of the e-books I've been reading lately. I don't like cutesy names and "Dotsy" for the heroine's name is pretty icky.

Second book by this author I believe and want to read the next one.. This was excellent
Enjoyable, coherent, well written, quick, easy read.
I have now read all three of the Dotsy Lamb travel mysteries. As before, these are enjoyable reads, cozy so to say. I just have a problem with a teacher being the only one who could figure out the problems. It made the authorities look quite incapable of figuring things out. But it is a quirky mystery, and enjoyable!
Diane Hernandez
Nice cozy mystery with good descriptions of both Greece and cruising. The audio book narrator really elevated this book from a 3 to a 4 star. She was entertaining and it was easy to keep the characters straight even during busy LA traffic.

I was given a copy of the audio book in exchange for an honest review.
I enjoyed this mystery, but I felt the characters needed a bit more depth (and perhaps fewer characters would be a step in the right direction). Furthermore, it's rather hard to take a protagonist with the name Dotsy very seriously. All-in-all, though, it was a nice, light read.

An average mystery. Great setting.
Free at ALA.
Love Maria Hudgins' Dotsy Lamb travel mysteries. I feel like I'm actually traveling along with the heroine. can't wait to start on book 4!
More of a 3.5. Well written traditional mystery in the vein of Miss Marple.
I'll definitely read more of these -- fun travel mystery!
